How To Choose A Name For Your Lizard

Lounge Of Bearded Dragons

There are hundreds of great Lizard names but how do you choose one?

Some keepers already have a name picked before they adopt a lizard – others don’t.

Finding the best name can be tough. What should you choose?

One of the best ways to narrow down your choices is to use a shortlist. From your shortlist try and match the following three rules:

  1. What color is your lizard?
  2. What is its personality?
  3. Is it male or female?

Hopefully our list of lizard names has inspired you!

Whether you chose a name from one of our lists or not, we would love to know what you named your pet lizard. Tell us in the comments below!
